It is no secret that Apple’s new MacBook Pros are expensive. In fact even ahead of the refresh, the previous generation of MacBook Pros weren’t exactly considered cheap either, but compared to the newer models, you could say that they were somewhat more affordable, but that is no longer the case.

It seems that if you were hoping to get your hands on an affordable MacBook Pro, it looks like Apple has officially discontinued the 2015 13-inch MacBook Pro which was the most affordable laptop in the MacBook Pro range. Sure, it didn’t necessarily have the latest specs or features like Touch ID or the Touch Bar, but for those who wanted a reliable computer that didn’t cost an arm and a leg, the 2015 13-inch MacBook Pro was an option.

Apple had kept the model around even after launching last year’s MacBook Pro refresh, but it looks like following the update to the MacBook lineup at WWDC earlier this week, the company has decided that maybe it was time to retire the 2015 model. If you wanted a more affordable MacBook Pro, your best bet would be the base 13-inch model without Touch Bar which is going for $1,300.

Alternatively you could always keep an eye out for a refurbished model which is usually sold for less, although if you have an issue with pre-owned electronics then maybe it might not be for you.
